CoolSculpting Can Help You Get Rid of Those Last Stubborn Pounds

CoolSculpting Can Help You Get Rid of Those Last Stubborn Pounds

Nothing is more frustrating than counting calories and sweating it out at the gym and still having pockets of fat that just won’t budge. It’s difficult to shed those last few pounds because your body is already at a healthy weight, and it’s nearly impossible to target those stubborn fatty deposits.

There’s good news, however. Thanks to nonsurgical body contouring, you can target unwanted fat and get rid of those last stubborn pounds from many areas of the body, including the belly, thighs, arms, and back; no scalpels or suctioning required. 

At Brooks Plastic Surgery in Hollywood, Florida, led by our board-certified surgeon, Christopher Brooks, MD, we use the revolutionary FDA-cleared CoolSculpting® to safely freeze fat cells that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Keep reading to learn more about what this treatment entails and how we can help you reach your aesthetic goals—without breaking a sweat!

How does CoolSculpting target stubborn fat?

CoolSculpting quickly and painlessly freezes fat deposits. The cold temperatures break down the targeted fat cells, and they die off. Your body then removes the blasted cells through the lymphatic system with your body’s cellular waste.

This type of body contouring isn’t painful, but you may feel a slight tugging sensation. You can enjoy the benefits of CoolSculpting for many areas that have extra, difficult-to-lose fat, including:

Each session takes an hour or less, and most patients have two to six sessions. No downtime is required after your CoolSculpting treatment, meaning you can get CoolSculpting and continue with your normal activities right away. 

What results can I expect with CoolSculpting?

In clinical studies, on average, patients notice a 20% reduction in fat in each treatment area. It’s important to understand, however, that your results aren’t immediate. It takes time for your body to remove the blasted fat cells. 

You can expect to see noticeable results after about three weeks, with optimal results taking four to six months to appear as your fat cells shrink, die, and get carried away. The exact amount of time depends on many factors, including the size of your treatment area.

It’s important to understand that even though it takes a few months for your final results to appear, once the treated fat cells are gone, they won’t come back. That means your CoolSculpting results are permanent. 

Note that if you gain weight, your body compensates by increasing the size of fat cells in other areas of your body. So to keep your new look, be sure to eat right and exercise. 

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

The best way to learn if you’re a candidate for CoolSculpting at Brooks Plastic Surgery is by making a no-obligation appointment with one of our specialists. Your provider creates a personalized CoolSculpting treatment plan based on your unique needs. 

Generally, you might be a good candidate for CoolSculpting if:

Remember, although CoolSculpting helps you achieve the shape you desire, it isn’t a weight loss procedure. If you’re overweight or obese, it’s important to lose weight before considering nonsurgical CoolSculpting.
